By: Awesome Ekene

Prospective corps members posted to Anambra State for the 2021 Batch C Stream 2 Orientation Course programme have been advised to shun fake news and abuse of hard drugs especially the dreaded Crystal Methamphetamine popularly known as Mkpuru-mmiri in the South East geopolitical zone.

State Coordinator, Mrs Baderinwa Yetunde gave the advice while presenting a brief to Corps members at the Nnamdi Azikiwe NYSC Unity permanent orientation camp Umuawualu /Mbaukwu Awka South Local Government of the State.

She also counseled the corps members to eschew hate speeches.

She said, “Corps members should avoid sharing fake news on social media because most information floating on the social media space are mostly unverified information.

“That’s why it’s important to crosscheck facts before sharing and to desist from propagating hate speeches.”

On the issue of hard and dangerous drugs which are prevalent in the society, the Coordinator urged the graduate youths to shun abuse of hard drugs especially the dreaded Mkpuru-mmiri, stressing that, “these drugs are very dangerous to your health.”
